SPONSOR OF DISADVANTAGED YOUTH WITH AN INTEREST IN:
MASIVUYISANE TRAINING NPC (NON-PROFIT COMPANY)
Masivuyisane Training was established in 2018 to support young students with an interest in medical studies.
As a student myself in the late 1980’s I was unable to complete my B.Pharm studies at University of Witwatersrand due to the lack of funds. I found employment at a company who assisted me to continue with my studies at Technikon Witwatersrand and graduated as an Analytical Chemist with the assistance of my first employer. I aspired to work in the pharmaceutical industry. Eventually after some laboratory experience I was able to work at various South African pharmaceutical and medical manufacturers. Later I joined a sales team and as a medical sales representative I was exposed to working in hospital central sterilisation departments and operating theatres. After a few years I started my own business with a business partner. Together we have represented International medical device companies in Southern Africa for more than 20 years. We are passionate about medical education and we want to assist students achieve their dreams of becoming medical professional practitioners.
